Malcolm Whitehead, Head of Discovery and Learning at ZSL London Zoo suddenly resigned last week. Malcolm Whitehead | ISOTOPE It is not know why exactly he resigned but a possibility is a major conflict with the Directors above. When Ken Livingstone (former Vice-President of ZSL) was Mayor of London, he enabled a sponsorship deal for the "ZSL Outreach" Programme, which has continued under Boris Johnson. This has enabled Primary and Secondary Schools in London's State Schools to visit London Zoo free of charge. I have heard, from an unconfirmed source, that Malcolm Whitehead resigned as those above him wanted to bring in extra charges whereupon the Local Education Authority and the School itself would have to contribute monies to their visit. Does anyone know whether this is true?
